Ooh, Interestinggg by Mouselemur Ooh, Interestinggg by Mouselemur

Photo taken in June, 2009 @ Zoo Dierenrijk, The Netherlands

EDITED

I cropped this photo a little bit, and adjusted the colors.

I have to be completely up front, because this photo is an absolute Raccoon Dog favorite of mine :D

He looks a tad cross-eyed, but truly adorable. I can't remember how exactly we'd caught his attention to catch him gazing up at us this way, but it's awesome!


Species: Raccoon Dog (Wasbeerhond)

 Latin name: Nyctereutes Procyonoides

 Originates from Europe and Asia.

 Current status: Least Concern

  Did you know:  

 …There’s also a Japanese Raccoon Dog, often referred to as Tanuki.

 …Despite its name, the Raccoon Dog is neither a Raccoon, nor a Dog, but a species of its own.

OO dank je! Het is al een aardig oude foto maar ik weet aardig zeker dat je mij en mijn vader er in kan zien maar ik weet het niet zeker ;). Dat vind ik ook een van de leukste dingen aan die foto, behalve dat de wasbeerhond er ook heel mooi op staat :D

Dank je! Wat leuk dat je hem herkend, het is niet echt een bekend dier in Nederland en ook daar buiten niet.
Heb je er een in dezelfde dierentuin als ik gezien of in een andere?

:iconrenehenckens:
ReneHenckens Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Inderdaad ook in dezelfde dierentuin. Dierenrijk ligt zowat in m'n achtertuin ;)
Is voor mij misschien 10 minuutjes rijden :)
Ben er pas 1 keer geweest, maar wil binnenkort weer eens terug

Mouselemur Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Zou je zeker moeten doen! Ik woon er ook redelijk dicht bij en ga er vaak naartoe. De wasbeerhondjes zijn wel een paar van de leukste beestjes daar. Ook al zijn ze niet zo vaak in beweging is het ook heel leuk om te zien hoe ze in een hoop op elkaar liggen in de koude wintermaanden. Maar de poolvosjes zijn ook zeker het bekijken waard! ;)

Zit m'n oude foto's van toen ff te bekijken. Zitten behoorlijk slechte tussen. Nog een reden om een keer terug te gaan ;)
Denk dat ik volgende maand ofzo ff binnen loop. Kijken of er wat jong spul rond loopt :)

Oo vast wel. Er gaat bijna geen bezoekje voorbij zonder dat er een of twee kleine beverratjes bij zitten :). Maar dat zou inderdaad de perfecte periode zijn voor wat leuk jong spul :D.

It's really uncommon where I live too. They don't live in the Netherlands in the wild of course, but I know only one other zoo I've visited (and I've visited quite a few) where they had raccoon dogs. But in the zoo I took this pic they are really sweet and I'm glad I've had the opportunity to take some great pic's :D.

Wow, that sounds great :) I do enjoy getting away from the city to spend some time in the more rural areas, but I can get how it could become a bit annoying to have to travel far to get to some places like a zoo or someting

It's cute indeed, but I don't think it would be a great pet. Though it seems often verry cuddly with the long fluffy hair, sweet pig-like nose and big brown eyes :3
